The new MacBook Air combines the power of Mac with the portability of iPad. Available in 11" and 13" models and weighing as little as 2.3 pounds, it’s Apple’s lightest and most portable notebook ever. MacBook Air uses the same flash storage technology as iPod to deliver instant-on responsiveness, up to 7 hours of battery life, and up to 30 days of standby time. The affordable MacBook Air defines the next generation of MacBook computers.

I have a dilemma. I am proud of my new Macbook Air 13\", and I want to show it to friends, but will they treat it with the same obsessive care that I do? NO!!! Showed it to my wife's fried last week who clattered it with the rings on her fingers. Stifling the urge to cringe and a gasp, I wisked it away from her and slipped it streight back into its snug gel cover, and hid it in my sock drawer. (Hoping burglers won't rummmage in my socks).

The new Macbook Air 11 inch - the best laptop ever? I think so...
Ok, upfront disclaimer - I am well know for being a bit of an Apple fan and I've used a Mac for a while. I am however quick to critise Apple when they get it wrong and I certainly expect an amazing product for my hard earned £1000!
I saw the Macbook Air announcement and thought 'looks good but it's a little underpowered, low in memory and very expensive for a netbook.' But then I saw the little beauty in the flesh and a... (read more)
